It sounds all too good to be true, along with the William Burroughs biopic!
  5. I'm the son of the owners of 55 Grand, the NYC jazz club and musicians hang that was located in Soho and open from 1981 to 1984.

I will pay money for any video, audio recordings, photographs, or other relevant archival materials from the club that you may have. Materials can be of performances or the general scene at the club.
